Due a rest!

My word these weeks roll by, its one of the side effects of working 7 days a week you end up having no idea what day it is or what a weekend off feels like..

I had an amazing reaction to lasts weeks entry for which I am very grateful. I did however have a very funny message. I quite often receive messages regarding my blog, this one however still makes me laugh even a week later. Last weeks entry was by far my most serious and most thought through blog to date. Not because I wanted to write some master piece it was just I was concerned how it would be perceived. So I actually went to the effort of reading my post after writing it. Something I never do much to my wife's utter dismay and then constant correction of my spellings and grammar. The first person on our facebook page that corrected my spelling, aka the spelling police, got banned. Ive tried banning her indoors but as everyone knows she is the boss!! Any way I've gone way off track, I wrote and posted my serious blog entry, recieved some lovely feedback from people that have been in a similar position, then I received a private message. The message was from a freelance writer offering to write my blog for me... I had no idea how to take it, part of me was bloody fuming but then as I'm not taking this seriously I could'nt stop laughing. I shared the message with friends who also thought it was hilarious. Now correct me if I'm wrong but surely a blog has to be written by the person who's blog it is?? Otherwise its not then your blog....I did reply to the message saying that I only write this as a record of our journey and something for us to look back on. The freelance writer did reply saying that they had taken a look at this blog and it was okay...okay??? Whats that supposed to mean, are they like the blog police or something? Like I said im still chuckling about it now and the irony of it is they have given me something extra to write about, so thank you my personal blog police officer.

It must of been a week for internet stuff because my friend who owns his own gas and plumbing business came to see me and I gave him a bottle of the Naga Toffee Vodka as he loves stuff like that. He then took it back to work to see his lads who I have to add had finished for the day, he poured a tiny amount into a cap and tricked someone into trying it. Of course they had no idea how hot it was and ran off cursing and spluttering, I found it funny and harmless so re-shared the video on our page. We then started getting a couple of comments slating him and saying he is unprofessional etc etc Almost like they were drunk engineers working on gas...someone said he was drink driving even though he didn't even have any.. I was watching this unfold and couldn't believe what was happening. I ended up banning one of the people. Someone even went on to say its a poor advertisement for my product. Now if anyone has met me at a show and asked me whats the Naga Toffee Vodka like I reply with "bloody awful" "I've ruined a perfectly good Toffee Vodka". Then people say but can I try it..some people love it and some people start nearly crying with the heat. I am one of those that whimper etc hence I think its bloody awful. So the idea of me trying to use that to advertise my "bloody awful" product is mad. I simply found the video funny and wanted to share it. Thankfully lots of people commented on the video that it was fun and harmless etc etc

I had one show at the weekend, a three day one at Hardwick Hall, it was a pretty good event made even better by the very kind hospitality of my friends Mick and Tracey who live nearby and put me up for the weekend. I was spoilt rotten and had breakfast made for me each morning, I'm hoping the Mr's reads this and then decides to make me breakfast in the morning...

We have a busy week this week and then I actually have a weekend off....

Ill keep you updated next week of my drunken antics that I'm planning....
